Manu,

I just read: 
https://hacks.mozilla.org/2013/04/web-payments-with-payswarm-identity-part-1-of-3/.

Of the four points listed below, where does WebID+TLS fall short?

 1. It must be decentralized.
 2. It must support discoverability by using a resolvable address, like
    a URL or email address.
 3. It must support, with authorization, arbitrary machine-readable
    information being attached to the identity by 3rd parties.
 4. It must be able to provide both public and private data to external
    sites, based on who is accessing the resource.
 5. It must provide a secure digital signature and encryption mechanism.

My suspicion is point #2, but please confirm .
